Week 11 Update

By ikigai | Dimes, Dollars & Dreams | 31 Oct 2021

Almost 3 months of weekly updates already, huh? I'm starting to get hopeful about reaching that $10k in time. 

This is the week 11 update with the stats from 27-10-2021.

You can find previous weeks here:
Week 1     Week 7
Week 2     Week 8
Week 3     Week 9
Week 4     Week 10
Week 5     
Week 6   

You can find my earning plan from the week 1-7 posts, I don't want to keep copying the same text over and over again. 

DISCLAIMER: I felt like I always write basically novels here, and thought lightening this post up with a lot of pictures would help, so that's what the reality is now. 

This week's crypto earnings:

week 11 stats

Crypto in USD: ~$16.75


Crypto Breakdown:

This week, I got extra FEY & FUN from the saving locks expiring and put the balances back to work as soon as I noticed it. I lock FUN in 30 day periods (for 10% APY), and FEY 80 day periods (for ~85% APY) currently. While such a short lock may seem inefficient (and the longer locking periods give better %), I like having the freedom to do whatever, whenever I want.

Other than that, this was another lazy~ish week for me, I was more focused on Rollercoin & Betfury. 'Wait, betfury?" you may ask, well let me explain why I'd even consider entering that devil's spawn of a website. Because of their 2nd anniversary, they added a free BFG 'box' (aka BFG faucet) which I started waiting for a few days ago. The main issue I've had with Betfury ever since first learning about them is the fact that BFG token is sooo cheap (worth around $0.02-0.03) but so damn difficult to get from their site without spending any money from your pocket. Now, they've finally offered a solution to my only big issue with the platform, so next week I'm expecting a nice little bump on my stats. 

Box takes ~20 mins to fill up, here's the current info for better reference about the amounts:


BTC's going strong, at around $60k, and I'm still not actively working towards increasing the balance until it falls down. All of the BTC I get is from staking and from cloud mining at the moment, and I'm completely okay with that. LTC is a beautiful beast, the free litecoin app I got on my phone (ref link here) is working so nicely + they got Halloween week bonuses, so I'm looking at an 80k litoshi increase from there alone in next week's stats.

Lastly, about other crypto adventures I got going on... I recently started experimenting with netbox.global (as I mentioned last week), and I gotta say... I really like it so far. It's basically exactly like Google Chrome, except I get also NBX daily just for activity + they got in-browser wallet & staking options, which I can always appreciate. While what I get now isn't really much (around 0.5-1 cent a day), I'm still at the very early stages of this program (I received my first reward 13 days ago, on 19-10). I guess I should start tracking the NBX on the weekly stats sheet as well. Also, for anyone interested in testing the program you can join with my ref link here, and get 10 NBX for free (check the pic below for details):


For reference, below are the past few days' stats from my wallet:

nbx stats


This week's non-crypto earnings:
  • Arc.io: $4.103
  • BeerMoneyForum: $0.036
  • IProyal pawns: $0.74
Non-crypto = ~$4.87


Week 11 total earnings: ~$21.62


In the end... it was a pretty eventful week overall, even if it doesn't show up in the numbers yet. I was making some calculations, I'm pretty much addicted to that at this point if it wasn't apparent yet, and with $20 a week, it'd take me 375 weeks (or 7 years and 2.5 months) from now to reach the $10 000! This sounds very bad, I know. If I could increase my weekly earnings to $100, I'd stand a much better chance (75 weeks or 1 year and 5.3 months) and that's where I'm headed. I figure, the growth seems very small in the first year, and most of the % comes closer towards the end anyway, so I'm not really worried. Though, I think I need to find a way to utilize the ETH that is still very much sitting in Coinbase for no reason at all, and move the remaining BTC in Nicehash to Nexo to get the staking going for it also. The only thing that has been stopping me so far is the fees... I'm waiting for a better time for ETH but I don't see it coming any time soon, so I might as well. 

About Crypto Idle Miner: I really love this game. It's clear to me that this is more than an experiment at this point, and I'm kinda addicted to seeing the progress. Currently, I'm sitting on top of the leaderboard of Diamond league - division 115. In 21 hours from now season 121 ends, and I'm curious to see if I've made it to the top 110 divs. For anyone playing this game, they got a Halloween event going on currently, and you can redeem 300 HORA with the code: HWEENCIM

The next week's goals I want to set up are:
  • Earn 0.00100000 LTC
  • Reach 30 BFG total
  • Reach 750 TRX total
The long term goals I have:
  • Reach 0.25 BTC (for $1.25 daily staking reward)
  • Reach 1 LTC (because I want to have it, mainly collected from faucets & saving rewards)
  • Reach 4600 RDD (for 2 RDD daily reward)
  • Reach 5215 TRX (for 1 TRX daily reward)
  • Reach 100 SPACE (for 400% APY)
  • Reach 100 mil DUTCHY (for 25% APY)
  • Reach 2500 FUN (for some extra rewards on Freebitco.in)

All goals are counted with today's (31-10-2021) crypto values, which may be adjusted if the cryptos' values change a lot. For now, the bigger picture here is to get to $50 a month from just staking/saving interest without investing more than the 550$ I spent at the beginning of this year. 

Progress to 10 000$:
